Default is this a good buy?

ive been looking for a decent deer rifle and unfortunately i'm definately on the low end as far as budget. i found a mossberg 100 atr in a 30-06 with a tasco scope for 250 it looks in good condition. the bolt moved a little sluggish but i think a good cleaning and oiling will fix that what you guys think? will i get a better rifle for the price? gun and rifle prices are a little above average in my part of the land. thanks for any help guys or girls if we have any here in the forum

Take a look at this thread. We had this discussion on the same subject rifle, not to long ago. If it does not answer your question, let us know and we will try and fill in the blanks where needed.

84, for $250 it's a pretty good price, esp. if the Tasco is decent and will hold a zero. As noted, this is not a target gun-expect to shoot well enough for Deer hunting, NOT X-ring shooting. Find the loads it likes and get yourself a Deer.

It's a good rifle for the price. I have one and have taken several deer with it. As mentioned, its a field rifle, it will take deer out to the effective range of a 30-06 but don't expect to win any competitions with it.

well my friends aren't into firearms or hunting so i couldn't really shoot anything before i bought it and since budget is a big concern my options were limited.

but i did it i bought my beauty today it is a used mossberg 100 atr in a 30-06 springfield with a nice 3-9x40 tasco scope that was drill and tap mounted to the rifle. i cleaned it and oiled it and the bolt slides like butter now. i'm happy with it. prolly going to the range next payday to zero in the scope and get the feel of it. i'm ready for deer season now. i sure can't wait. i'll try to post some pictures of it tomorrow. thanks guys for all your help it really helped me out alot. also i'll post some pics whenever deer season starts and i get my first buck

sorry for the double post i meant to put it on this thread but i put it on the other one first because i didn't see this one.
